Privacy & Policy

 Confidentiality & Privacy Policy

The law protects the relationship between a patient and a psychotherapist, and information cannot be disclosed without written permission.

Exceptions include:

  • Suspected child abuse or dependent adult or elder abuse, as I am required by law to report this to the appropriate authorities immediately.
  • As a psychologist, I am obliged to report instances where a patient states that he or she has downloaded, streamed, or accessed through any electronic or digital media depictions in which a child is engaged in an act of obscene sexual conduct.
  • If a patient is threatening serious bodily harm to another person/s, I must notify the police and inform the intended victim/s.
  • If a patient intends to harm himself or herself, I will make every effort to enlist their cooperation in ensuring their safety. If they do not cooperate, I will take further measures without their permission that are provided to me by law in order to ensure their safety.
